• Can my glasses be changed to eliminate my double vision?


    Question:

    I am 18 and just had strabismus surgery on both eyes for esotropia (when one or both eyes turn inward). It has been a week since the surgery. Without my glasses, both of my eyes now look straight ahead. However, when I wear my glasses, my right eye turns inwards. This causes double vision when I view objects close to me. Double vision is minimal when I'm not wearing my glasses. Are the glasses the problem? Will a more suitable prescription fix this eye-turn?


    Answer:

    I would have your ophthalmologist check your eye glasses prescription to see if you need an adjustment in the strength to allow your eyes to work together more comfortably.
